Some scary moments in front of Porto’s Bakery and Cafe in Burbank this morning. A light tan sedan slammed into a traffic signal light pole a few feet from the entrance of the very busy establishment.
The investigating Burbank Police officer says the driver was “coming from some medical appointment” and “apparently passed out .” It happened just as the unidentified female motorist was going east on Magnolia Boulevard and attempted to make a right turn onto Hollywood Way.
The driver was shaken up a bit, but “looks fine,” according to the police officer. However, the vehicle suffered front end damage. Also, the traffic signal light pole was damaged so severely it had to be replaced.
